Some thought it would never ever happen, but let us rejoice!

Today on the 25th of July, Cycling Australia has announced that they will allow road disc bike to be raced at club and state level. (UCI National Champs are still off the list)

Cycling Australia Disc Brakes Approved

Curve Cycling and our network of friends and riders are proud to see Cycling Australia take lead on this judgment. We all know that riding disc wheels is a much safer and reliable option when racing or going out a grand adventure.

CEO Nick Green OAM said that the new stance on disc brakes will encourage and allow more people to get involved in racing, particularly at the local club level.

“Cycling Australia is taking a leadership role in the global discussion around disc brakes and look forward to seeing a positive effect on the Australian cycling landscape with this announcement,” said Green.

Cycling Australia actively works at all levels to remove barriers for people getting into cycling, and we believe this is another valuable step towards getting more people to give racing a go.” he added.

When I read the announcement, I for one turned the music up and did a little dance. I look forward to racing crits on my bike!
